About me

Hello! My name is Brigette and I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in East Bay, California. I have 10 years experience working with clients, providing therapeutic counseling services. I have worked with a diverse population of clients ranging from children, teens, adults, and elders. I provide services for individuals and families assisting with issues such as depression, isolation, anxiety, self esteem, trauma, loss, relationship issues, parenting issues, and more. I enjoy working with individuals from all walks of life and backgrounds and I value genuineness and collaboration with my clients. I provide a safe and supportive holding environment that is authentic and nonjudgmental in nature. I tailor my specific approach depending on client situation, needs, and goals for therapy. As well as draw from theories such as CBT, Solution Focused, Family Systems, and Client Centered modalities. Growth and change are encouraged through self reflection and finding practical solutions to problems.
Making a change can feel overwhelming and scary, but if you are ready to take the first step and begin the road to a new way of life, I am here to help uplift and support you! I appreciate your courage and I look froward to hearing from you!

Brigette is a fantastic listener and therapist. Her support got me through some very tough times dealing with anxiety and then heading into the pandemic years. I cannot thank her enough for all her help!

Brigette is amazing! I am so lucky to have her as my counselor. She is extremely understanding and I feel comfortable expressing myself with her. Initially, I was hesitant to sign up to BetterHelp because I was shy. However, Brigette immediately made me feel comfortable and safe. She had helped me with a lot of my issues. I tend to have weekly meetings with her because thats what works best for me. She replies quickly and she is extremely kind. Brigette is a great listener and supportive!
